She is known with her refine and remarkable taste – of clothing, art of living and talent of capturing beauty in life onto a canvas. 
Raised in France, the daughter of a Spanish mother and a Vietnamese father, artist Anh Duong has always considered herself an outsider.
 “I feel at home everywhere and nowhere,” she says in AD interview. But the East End of New York’s Long Island has had a peculiar hold on her for nearly half of her life. She spent her first summer there in 1988, when, as a model fresh from Paris, she joined Julian Schnabel, then her new boyfriend, in Andy Warhol’s former cliff-top house in Montauk. It was there that she painted her first self-portrait, the genre that has become her artistic signature. 
Beautiful and talented Anh Duong has a reserved position in Vogue list of well dressed people but what makes her unique is capability to capture beauty around in colors. Her paintings are like a love poem – sensitive, wise and vulnerable at same time. 
Some of you who will have a chance to see her upcoming exhibition at Robilant+Voena gallery, London in February, will experience this unexpected journey into the intimate world of one of the real aristocratic ladies of this century. This is going to be Anh’s first UK exhibition of paintings and sculptures and it will feature twelve paintings and two sculptures. 
Open from February 3rd through to March 21st 2014.
